Frequently Asked Questions
If the hazard puts employees at imminent danger, call Campus Police @ 911 from a campus phone or (559) 278-8400 from a cell phone. If not, please inform your supervisor. You may also contact the Office of Environmental Health & Safety and Risk Management (EHS/RM) directly by calling (559) 278-7422. Hazards can also be reported online. This form is available in pdf form so that it can be printed out and mailed or faxed. Anonymous reporting is permitted but not encouraged because we may need to ask questions to help with the hazard investigation. Additionally, we would not have a way to report our investigation findings back to you. Please see our Report a Hazard section.
The Office of Environmental Health & Safety and Risk Management (EHS/RM) is the liaison between the campus and regulatory agencies for environmental, health and safety issues. Normally, regulatory agencies contact EHS/RM before inspecting a site on campus. EHS/RM then contacts the affected departments about the upcoming inspection.
If an inspector arrives at your workplace unaccompanied by a EHS/RM staff member, do not turn them away. Please contact EHS/RM at (559) 278-7422. A EHS/RM staff member must be present during an inspection.
